Everything You Need To Know About Fantastic Beasts: Crimes Of Grindelwald

By KK Angus, 29 December 2017


The Harry Potterverse just keeps on growing and we wouldn’t have it any other way. The sequel to Fantastic Beasts is coming, and it has been making a whole lot of headlines lately. The second film installment in the Fantastic Beasts series and the tenth production in J. K. Rowling's Wizarding World will hit theatres next year and will bring back the old cast and some ‘Fantastic’ new additions.

Rowling announced last year that the Fantastic Beasts series would have five films, but the series' timeline will end in 1945. It is very important to keep up with the chronology of the series, as the Fantastic Beasts series starring Eddie Redmayne takes place around sixty years before Harry Potter begins. So, while you will see several Potterverse regulars like Albus Dumbledore in the movies, you will also see some names which have never been seen in the Potterverse before.There is a lot to keep up within the Fantastic Beasts series, and we suggest you pay attention to all the details.

1What happened so far

Fantastic Beasts and Where To…. delved into the wizarding world of 1920 New York. Magizoologist Newt Scamander (Redmayne), comes to New York in search of magical creatures and encounters some of the darkest witches and wizards of his time.

At the end of the film, dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (played by Colin Farrell and Johnny Depp), is arrested by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America). Scamander helps in capturing Grindelwald, but he does not know that Grindelwald’s reign of terror has just begun.

Grindelwald of course escapes and starts making an army. Interestingly, his motive is very similar to Voldemort’s - to raise legions of pure-blood wizards and witches and suppression of half-bloods.

2The new characters

One of the most exciting character addition in Crimes of Grindelwald is of course, a young Albus Dumbledore, played by Jude Law. Potterdom has been eagerly waiting to see a young Dumbledore in action, especially since, his relationship with Grindelwald is one of the main arcs of the film.

Another character fans can’t wait for is of course, Depp as Grindelwald. Now, he did appear in the first film, but only for seconds. The sequel, as the title suggests, will have a lot more of Gellert Grindelwald.
